Summer Reading Challenge

Escape! Discover Your Summer Adventure @ the Library

The annual summer reading challenge for children, teens, and adults is coming your way soon. The Adventure begins on Friday, June 1st and runs through July 13th.

Here are 6 reasons why you and your children should join.

1)      You can win prizes and get cool free stuff.

2)      Accepting the reading challenge makes you feel accomplished and smart!

3)      The Library is a fun, safe, free, and air-conditioned environment with day, evening and weekend hours.

4)      Special (free) entertainment is scheduled in June and July including Incredible Bats and an Exotic Animal Show.

5)      Children who read during the summer avoid the “summer reading slide”. Research shows that they increase their chances of maintaining or even increasing their reading level. 

6)      Parents and grandparents who join the reading challenge are models for literacy in the home.
